Parasites are just a fact with horses, but with the right program, it is easy to control. Our website, GetRotationRight.com, is packed with essential information about how best to implement a deworming program.
In keeping with our healthy horse philosophy, we continually strive to come up with promotions to better the bond between horses and people.
